As a freelance tourism manager, cruise director and travel photographer, I work alongside cruise companies and travel agencies to provide insider knowledge and options for destination management and travel excursions. I perform regularly as a guest speaker at international travel & cruise conferences.

Offering extensive knowledge on prime filming, excursion and cruising destinations and with over 30 years’ experience in the industry, I also offer high resolution photography and 4K film packages, tailored to client’s needs.

This service is available on a regional, national and international basis. I’ve acquired extensive knowledge on European and international rivers, including the Rhine, Danube, Moselle, Douro, Rhône, Seine, Gironde estuary, Nile, Amazon, Mississippi, Yangtze and Mekong, to name a few.

I have completed over 10 global cruises and visited over 150 countries. In addition to this, I have a working network of first-class tourism professionals that operates successfully around the globe. My service is bookable for a variety of jobs in the tourism industry and I am convinced that my professional communication, organization, initiative, creative and proven problem-solving skills make my company the best way forward.

There are times you meet people who are nice, there are times you meet people who impress you, then there is Werney Beyer. Werney is not only nice, he is not only impressive, he is an absolute professional, he is a man of supererogatory actions. I have seen Werney go the extra mile when encountering a range of problems, No matter how big the problem he is always positive and upbeat. His energy and positivity is infectious and he lifts the mood of those who come in contact with him.

Don’t let anyone tell you that Germans don’t have a great sense of humour! Having just spent time watching the man in action as a Scenic Cruise director down the Rhine and Danube, I can’t recommend him enough. His energy, personality, and twinkle-eyed wit won over guests from all sides of the globe . . . nothing was too much trouble, whether cycling miles down the towpath to pick up medicine from the pharmacy, or jumping out in front of a busy line of traffic to allow excursion buses to leave on time. Werney is the Champions’ League of tour guides – it’s always showtime when he’s on board!

There is a very special bit of magic that you are left with after an encounter with Werney Beyer. Having had the opportunity to spend time with Werney recently, I was left with a renewed sense of wonder, not only with the world and people around me but of the world and person that reside within. Werney has an incredible ability to connect with people in a variety of scenarios. From engaging and entertaining large diverse groups while choreographing staff and presentations to executing the smallest of details for an exacting clientele, Werney does not miss a beat. It is like a conductor and his symphony with the result nothing short of beautiful music. Life is not a dress rehearsal and it was a pleasure to be a part of Werney Beyer’s SHOWTIME!
